Convocation Information

Graduating Class of 2018, in the stands within the UIC Pavilion, with Honors College deans and faculty seated in the front row

We are deeply saddened to announce that the Honors College Convocation 2020 has been cancelled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.  Please watch this page for additional information about how the Honors College plans to recognize the accomplishments of the Class of 2020.

The Honors College Convocation is a formal and personal way to acknowledge the success of graduating seniors each spring semester. At the ceremony, students wear their commencement robes, and receive their gold stoles and a certificate of achievement. A leading scholar and an Honors College graduating senior are asked to speak.

The Honors College honors graduating seniors each fall semester through a reception, where they receive their gold stoles and a certificate of achievement, alongside their families and Honors College staff and Faculty Fellows.
